Chose the place for a birthday get together. The ambience is very nice because it was a little dark, I loved the chairs. Our server was ok, very patient with us while choosing what we wanted from the menu. The Ramen was good, my sushi was ok. I was not that happy with the Amakara lunch special, my friend got... More

I went with a group of sushi adventurists, so we shared many rolls. It was a great experience and the staff was extremely helpful with selecting rolls based on preference.

The food was one of the best sushi places in the area but the wait can be crazy. I made a reservation on a Thursday non-holiday night and still waited almost an hour. It was BUSY but for a reason. It really is super good sushi and they have made very quality options and creations.

I love the food here. There is plenty of options to choose from - donburi to sushi to teriyaki to sashimi.. If you love Japanese food, you will not be disappointed here. The Hamachi Carpaccio was divine!! I am an eel lover.. so I always find something with eel in it. Their miso is very good as well. My only... More

Always busy...make sure to get there at opening time. Service is ok to poor, depending on where you get seated. Don't get caught in the corner, you will be waiting forever. Food is passable as Japanese food but too much volume. If you order sushi, expect long wait. it gets too loud, so don't expect romantic dinner...If your hungry and... More

Excellent food, especially the sushi rolls! Very relaxed atmosphere, although it can get crowded and a bit noisy.

Dublin, Calif., folks are all atwitter about Amakara, a "contemporary Japanese" darling. I want on a Thursday night. It opens at 5 p.m. By the time the doors opened, there were some 40 folks in line to eat that night. In talking to someone else in line, I discover that it used to be that lines only formed on weekends.... More

This is the second time I visited this restaurant whilst staying in boring Pleasanton. The restaurant was full and I had to wait 15-30 minutes to be seated. I had seat at the bar, so could enjoy seeing the cooks making the Sushi, sashimi and more. It is fresh. It tastes gorgeous. Best sushi I ever had in my life.
